Minister Coye briefed Mr. Al-Khalaf on Belize’s application to gain eligibility to the World Bank’s International Development Association (IDA) highly concessionary resources through the Small Island Economy Exception, emphasizing that due to its high vulnerabilities to climate and other economic shocks, Belize, like other small island economies, needs access to more affordable financing for development. Mr. Al-Khalaf pledged the Kingdom’s support for Belize on this matter.

Minister Coye also met with Mr. Fahad AlNaeem, Deputy Minister of Sector Development of the Ministry of Investment, the Chairman of the Federation of Saudi Chambers, Mr. Hasan Mujeb Alhwaizy, the Deputy CEO of the Saudi ExIm Bank, Dr. Naif A.
